Worried The Weight Won't Come Off



Recommended Posts

I had surgery 10/10 and have lost 22 lbs. As I add full liquids I am scared I am going to gain weight and that the weight will not come off very quickly. Has anyone else experienced this? Any advice to offer?

My experience was I lost 20 the first 4 weeks then had a 2 and a half week stall. I posted my concern and everyone, I mean everyone, told me its normal and to have patience because the weight will come off. And well, by the end of that week- I started to lose again. I really feel it would be impossible to NOT lose weight unless you have a hidden medical issue keeping you from it.

I think our bodies start to panic that we are in starvation mode and they hang onto the fat/weight. I was sleeved 10/3 and had a stall for abt a week. I kept tryn to add more Water and one more Protein Shake. this helped. I've lost 20 pounds total from pre and post surgery!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
